Accepting Mobile Phone Call When in Europe

Get a Global SIM from – this will give you a number with an Isle of Man 07624 prefix that has no roaming charges for incoming calls. Give that number to the people you really WANT to be able to call you. Set a voicemail message on your normal mobile informing callers of the alternate number and leave it switched off. Publicise your new mobile number everwhere you normally plaster your details.

The Global SIM roams on all 4 networks in the UK so you get better coverage for incoming calls. Use another mobile for outgoing calls in the UK though.

    Ali – Virgin Mobile charge £5/MB for data whether you’re in the UK or Europe. If you only download your headers instead of the full email then messages you regard as junk will cost you virtually nothing.
